to by the company, all cables and wires

was to prevent accidents where a high

there are a great number In the city.

changed this so as to encase the

Sightseers and others who are Interested
In the Mount Tabor park project. Those
who are 'pushing the nark clan are con
fident that only one visit-will be neces

Is Ideally situated for park purposes.

extreme south to tha farthest north.
One only needs to turn half around to
be able to take In tha mountains In the
east and far north and' look down on
the pretty little suburb of Montavilla
at tbe base of the eastern side of the
hill; and beyond,, miles of fertile farm
lands stretch before the eye. -Residents
of this hill are very ' n
thuslaatlc over their surroundings and
would not give their location- for any
other In the city. They have both the
city and tbe country In their panoramlo
landscape, ana wnue perhapa .their lo

respects thsn Council Creet, yet they
dec Is re that the steep approach to
Council Crest has Its disadvantages.
Tbe park plan has been carefully
thought, out by ths Mount Tabor Push
club, and tbe proposition will coma up
ror tne peoples consideration, as It Is
the objeot of the club to have the peo
ple's desire in the matter recorded at
ths next June election. ,
Boundary Siapata On
A great deal of misunderstanding ex
ists in regard to the precis boundaries
of -what la known as the Mount Scott
district Each one of the little com
munities that go to make up this big
district are very jealous of the others
and watch vary carefully- any-.-move
made by, any fit ths others that looks
like an attempt to embrace under Its
name a larger territory than right
fully comee under Its approved juris
diction, which la generally determined
by the publlo opinion of the combined
Ths Mount Seott district covers a dis
tance of six miles and Includes all the
stations on the Mount Scott line of the
Oregon Water Power from beyond
Woodstock to Lents, a territory In which
are three poatof flees.
Sines there Is no station on tha Una
that Is called Mount Scott many people 1
are confused by the name.- But accord
ing to the bes t authorities- In the die- I
trlot alb the .stations on the 11 n oan
share the name Mount Scott equally and
not Inappropriately, aa the real Mount
Bcott lies east of the entire d 1st riot In
the big hill that looms up beyond Lenta
The district Is rapidly growing snd
soon the boundaries of the many towns
along the: line will be bne.- Already a
movement for annexation la popular
except, possibly, at Lents, where a sen
timent for Incorporation la predomi
nant, and the district will probably be
added to the city at the general eleotlon
in June, 190t.
Improvement Club to Meet
The Mount Scott Improvement asso
ciation meets this evening and will
hold Its annual election of officers. Many
improvements roe-the district are talked
of. the moat urgent of which seems to
be lights for the car line. The com
pany will be asked to Install lights
along the moat frequented part a. of the
line and later they will be expected to
do more for the district. Their patron
age Is great and will be greater with
Increased -comforts In the way of bet
ter stations and lights.
A movement to continue the Improve
ment of Union avenue to Alberta street
has been started by the property owners
along the street and a petition for that
purpose Is being circulated among them.
Thla will be another great stimulus for
the rising values of east side realty.
This Is pre-eminently a business dis
trict snd the growth In the territory
adjacent to T'nlon avenue In ths last
frw years has been marvelous. Over
nine miles of hhrd pavement Is to be
